For the majority of the first half of the fantasy basketball season, San Antonio Spurs PG Tony Parker was simply going through the motions. He wasn’t wowing anyone with his stat lines and he was simply showing up to work.
Recently, though, the international superstar has been starting to heat up for fantasy fans. Parker has averaged 20.8 points over his final seven games alone and the veteran has been starting to score like a shooting guard. The team has lost several stars recently, including Manu Ginobili (hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (finger), but Parker has continued to carry the load on offense.
The point guard has also dished the ball out lately. He has also added 6.7 assists over the seven-game span, including 19 dimes over the last two games alone. Parker is making the most the talent around him, and if anything else, it has caused the one-guard to become more creative offensively.
Like most players over the age of 30, Parker has suffered some injury setbacks this year. He missed some games after suffering injuries to his shin, groin, and knee already this season. The 31-year-old isn’t getting any younger and it is inevitable that he will miss the occasional game moving forward.
Parker is finally putting up PG1 numbers and will continue to be a must-start the rest of the way.
